Extraordinary Interactive Hi-Res Exhibit of Bosch’s ‘Garden of Earthly Delights’

by Christopher Jobson
Teaching art history online can be tough, despite a wealth of tools and technologies it’s difficult to create an environment that compares to a great teacher who can make artworks engaging to a live audience. However, this new interactive exhibit of Hieronymus Bosch’s famous Garden of Earthly Delights completely nails it. This is the internet we were promised.
The site was created by filmmakers, photographers and art historians as part of an upcoming documentary by Pieter van Huijstee titled Hieronymus Bosch, Touched by the Devil. The ‘interactive documentary’ not only lets you explore the painting in incredible detail down to the most minute brush strokes, it also includes sound design as you move through various sections of the painting and a series of audio essays describing over 40 areas of the painting! This might be the crowning example of how to educate the public about a masterwork painting online, I wish there was something like this for more artworks.
The documentary and interactive exhibit coincide with the 500th anniversary of the artist’s death, which is also being celebrated by the Noordbrabants Museum in the Netherlands that is currently exhibiting 20 paintings and 19 drawings by the “Devil’s Painter”—the vast majority of his surviving works.
To see more paintings in vivid detail you can also explore the Google Art Project (they beat us for a Webby a few years ago, but we’re not bitter). Also related: A new Bosch painting was identified in Kansas City last week. (via Metafilter)

La fotografía del hombre que atrapó "La mano de Dios" en Portugal

Eran las ocho de la mañana de un domingo en Madeira, Portugal, cuando una extraña bola de fuego se formó en el cielo. Como suele hacerlo, Rogéiro Pacheco, aficionado a la meteorología, la astronomía y "todo lo que tenga que ver con la ciencia", estaba listo para no dejarla escapar.
